Over the year, I've gone on and on about how great the iPhone is as an image making tool. It enforces an attitude i've always held that the camera isn't important - the photographer is.
Another series of photographs taken in Afghanistan using an iPhone have appeared, taken by photojournalist Damon Winter and the images are just superb. Using the Hipstamatic iPhone app, the New York Times photographer has captured a series of stunning photographs while embedded with the First Battalion, 87th Infantry of the 10th Mountain Division in northern Afghanistan.
